Nope, I’m not referring to the flipper-in-chief, Sen. John Kerry. I’m talking about the Democratic Party’s other “problem” – Chairman Howard Dean. He reportedly told evangelical viewers of CBN’s The 700 Club the 2004 Democratic Party platform declares that “marriage is between a man and a woman”. Well, the platform certainly doesn’t say that, and gay rights groups freaked out. So, what did Howard do? He addressed the gaffe today by setting the record straight.
Dean acknowledged: “I misstated the Democratic Party’s platform, which does not say marriage should be limited to a man and a woman,” and reasserted the party’s commitment to equal protection for all.
But did Howard go back on The 700 Club to clarify his blatant lie which was clearly a bonafide pander job to evangelicals?
